Special Tree Dedication Scheduled in Preston

Monday’s meeting of the Preston Lions Club was an emotional one for me.  Our special guest was Judy Lundy and her service dog, Pepper.  Judy has a hearing impairment and spoke about her journey with hearing loss which ultimately lead to her obtaining Pepper.  Quite a moving story, but not the reason for this article.
Preston resident, Lion Erik Paulson, spoke of his plans to dedicate a tree Saturday April 22.  During the storms last year, Goose Flats Park, located next to Root River Vet Clinic, lost a couple of crab apple trees.  Erik has arranged for the planting of a new tree as part of Earth Day and Preston Pride Clean Up Day.  He explained that the tree will be planted in honor of his grandfather, who was also a Lion.  Erik stated that with the birth of each grandchild, his grandfather planted a tree.  He also went on to explain that his grandfather was the “solid oak” of their family; thus, the new tree in Goose Flat Park will be an oak.  What a beautiful tribute.
If you want to be on hand for the dedication, stop by Goose Flats Park Saturday around 12:30.  The weather should be perfect and I know Erik would appreciate the support.  Thank you, Erik, for your generosity.
